Will a student in school today go to Mars?
The International Space Station is the stepping stone
My ISS-Above was flashing furiously one morning just after 5am, so I hauled out of bed to watch the Space Station pass by at 5:35am. Amazingly, I could also see the Japanese HTV supply module undocking. You can see my photos on Facebook.
The Space Station is becoming ever more vital in experiments to find out how humans can endure a trip to Mars - and be able to function when they get there. Scott Kelly, the current Commander, is staying up on the ISS for a one year experiment - a typical tour of duty is 6 months.
In schools, ISS-ABOVE promotes curiosity, enthusiasm and questions about space, geography, mathematics, physics and programming from children of all ages and ability levels.
